If you wonder about how to create a DIY garland, it is important to prepare some materials such as rope, greenery, and twine. To do this craft, you should measure the proper length of the rope. After that, you can cover it with greenery. Use gardener’s twine to secure it in individual bunches. Keep doing it down to the length of the rope so you can cover it perfectly.
When you use a mix of foliage, it looks great if you combine it with the artificial berries and hips. Other than that, it is possible for you to combine garland with evergreen foliage, myrtle, holly, and ivy. Alternatively, combine it with pussy willow, artificial berried sprays, and hellebores. What makes it great to combine these things is to create a realistic look. So, nobody realizes that the decor actually has faux elements.
Next, you can work for a paper decoration. It is what you need to create an interesting sweep for the fireplace mantel. You can buy the paper online since there are many sites offer it with many options of cut paper decorations. For example, it is possible to find honeycomb garlands to complete this decor.
